Fanuary Requests

    January 2018

    Starting in September of 2017 I embarked on a project responding to a few key ideas I wanted to address. I wanted to do more art for practice, and test myself on certain skills. I wanted to explore away from my style canon and play around. I wanted to embrace imaginative fantasy without rules. I also wanted to just make something new. Instead of overworking any particular personal art piece I decided to focus on creating daily art.

    I limited myself to a few hours at most; these were all intended as "sketches" or warm-up paintings. Each day was a new challenge and a new approach. Each month had a theme to tie the pieces together, chosen based on what felt exciting to me at that time.

    To cap off the project I took requests from followers on Tumblr and Instagram. The eclectic nature of the topics created a fun month of spontaneity.
